ACO addresses Blue/Green Roof design with new online CPD

by Matt Downs

Learn more about Blue/Green Roof design with ACO’s latest CPD webinar, which takes place at 12.30pm on 16th November.

ACO’s new RoofBloxx rainwater attenuation system is designed specifically as a roof drainage layer for use on blue, green and blue/green roof applications to store rainwater at source and to control surface water run-off. ACO’s patent pending solution separates the competing drainage requirements by engineering an elevated structural attenuation system that operates independently of the flat roof drainage system, allowing both storm eventualities and systems to be engineered to known standards and best practice.

You can learn more about Blue/Green Roof design in ACO’s latest CPD webinar which the company says will challenge your perception about Blue/Green Roof design. ACO says with the drive to mitigate the effects of climate change and deliver net zero emissions, cities around the world are writing into their development plans the need for more sustainable construction methods, and this presentation will explain the role of Blue/Green Roofs in the creation of sustainable urban environments covering the key design considerations.

With key elements of interest for architects, roofing contractors, civil and building engineers, ACO says this webinar CPD will explain the pros and cons of different roof types and provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of key drainage design considerations. 

Delivered by Neill Robinson-Welsh, ACO’s in-house Blue/Green Roof design expert, the session will also cover the ‘design dilemma’:  how to design a Blue/Green Roof which can meet the flat roof design standards under BS EN 12056-3:2000, and meet planning conditions without compromising either requirement.  

The event counts as 1 hour of CPD. Register here.
